Idiopathic Short Stature - my daughter is taking Humatrope & when I gave her the injection yesterday... i forgot to put it in the fridge; my older daughter found it in the morning & put it in the fridge then. the whole kit with the mixed vial in it was left out of the fridge for about 18hrs. Problem: when i gave my daughter her injection tonite i was not aware that it had been left our overnight. What effect does this have, using the mixture after it has been out of the fridge for 18hrs. Will this cause any problems & should i notify the Dr
Don't worry about the injection you have already given but don't use anymore. Its effectiveness may have been reduced.
By storing the drug incorrectly the manufacturer can no longer guarantee its safety or efficacy.
You should call your doctor and ask for a new prescription.
